Dave Ramsey has this saying about getting out of debt, be gazelle intense about it.
I am gazelle intense on this No-Buy. Today I shopped all day (like 6 hours) in Houston with my family and I came home with NOTHING. Didn’t buy anything at Sephora. Soma had a sale for $15 bras. I bought none. I had a scare when I asked to go to Bath N Bodyworks. I wanted that Almond Blossom hand cream and hand soap so bad. But they didn’t have the hand cream and I didn’t want to spend the $7.50 for the hand soap. So I spent $0. There was some cheap jewelry that I wanted too at a couple of stores, but I stuck to my guns and didn’t spend a dime. I’m so proud of myself.
Unfortunately I had some financial things come up I had to pay for on credit cause I have no Emergency Fund or Savings. Specifically for my car. I had to pay $75 registration, then also 2 of my tires were cracked and the place I went to for safety testing of my car wouldn’t sign off for me to get my registration cause they said it was unsafe to drive with the cracked tires. So that was $235 for two new tires. Also I have to get some FREON or get my A/C charged cause the a/c is going out at low speeds. It works fine at high speeds. My boyfriend said that might cost about $150 or less.
I didn’t weigh myself today. I was too scared cause of all I ate the past 2 days.
I looked at the practice exam for the GRE, it scared the crap out of me. I don’t know half that crap. I gotta study harder. The essay portion is the worst. I’ve been focused on getting my math skills up but I need to work on my essay skills. I take the exa mon September 9.
I’m updating my vision board. I started a Pinterest with all the things I want to put on my vision board. I’m going to print them out and hang it on my vision board on my wall. Check out my Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/mit1506/vision-board/
